CHAMPLAIN —

LAKE PLACID — Meghan Strong connected on five 3-pointers, good for 21 points, in the Patriots victory over the Blue Bombers.

“They shot well, and they’re quick off the ball,” Lake Placid coach Jeff Porter said. “(Coach) Roger Long has them playing well heading into sectionals. It was senior night, and it was emotional. The girls put it all on the court. They hit a number of 3-pointer, and it’s tough to defend them from the perimeter.”

Taylor Saltus added 14 points for AuSable Valley. Veronica Zayonc paced the Blue Bombers with six markers.
